that show a two-pronged attack on violent crime would be successful in america, producing violent crime by as much as 50% with life sentences for career criminals. for example, under the armed career criminal bill, and we passed the second chance act, the biden specter bill, the president signed it last year. it seems to me that we need more funding on detoxification, job traini training, re-entry. no surprise when a functional illiterate leaves prison without a trade or skill, they go back to a life of crime. i would like you to take a look at that. i would also like you to take a look at the issue on attacks on prison guards. there's been a rash of them because of the very substantial overcrowding. i wrote to the director of the federal bureau of prisons who i know is doing an excellent job with some suggestions about giving the guards some protective measures. some suggestions have been made about pepper spray, some suggestions have been made about break-away batons, stab-proof vests. i would appreciate it fld take a look at those items and others which could provide safeguards for p

of america saw the document but did not show us they did any analysis to make up for merrill commissions. on the contrary, the evidence we have suggests that bank of america pulled a number out of thin air. far from being consistent with the actual experience of october or what they knew about the third quarter, the guess, wistfully assumed that the markets for collateralized debt obligation and credit default swaps would be significantly better in november and december. it was assumed that merrill lynch would almost break even for november. then the attorneys at bank of america went to work. they did not question the financial information they were given. . e financial information they were given. they begin with the assumption additional shareholder disclosure was necessary and they discussed what kind of exposure they would make but after studying the question for a week they decided the news was not sufficiently out of line from past performance than previous disclosures to warrant further shareholder disclosure. the sunmaid icuf council bank of america did not make any further discl

america. currently, physicians in rural areas are reimbursed less for medicare than their urban counterparts. h.r. 3962 will rume burs primary care physicians in rural areas, not only to equalize the disparity but to make rural communities more attractive to physicians. most of my district is considered a health professional shortage area. in my district in colorado, we have three counties with only practicing physician. we have one county with none at all. this bill will increase the number of physicians in all my counties and improve access for 106,000 medicare beneficiaries. this bill will expand insurance coverage to 111,000 currently uninsured citizens in my district. it will help 184,000 low-income families pay for their insurance. our current system is broken and it is time to fix it now. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from texas. mr. barton: mr. speaker, i want to recognize from the pelican state, a member of the committee, congressman scalise of new orleans for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized for one minute. mr. sca
wheelchairs, taxing pacemakers, taxing hearing aids. this bill is not right for america, it's not right for families, it's not right for small businesses and it's not right for seniors. we need real solutions. let's focus on reducing the costs, maybe, offer tax incentives, enact medical liability reform, allow people to buy insurance across state lines. these solutions bring lower costs and bring health care to those who really need it. mr. speaker, the most troubling aspect, though, of this bill is that it takes away freedom. and this freedom, mr. speaker, the house is not in order. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is correct. the house will be in order. mr. reichert: mr. speaker, the most troubling aspect of this bill is that it takes away freedom. and this freedom came through great sacrifice. the sacrifice of men and women throughout history of this great nation so that we could choose and live a free life. this bill takes away that freedom, the freedom to choose the health care that's right for you and your family, this bill takes away that freedom requiring every american to
-- america is in serious problems with respect to health care. virtually every other developed country has a better system than we do. ours is costly. in places it's ineffective. it's deeply troubled. the time has come to really see that people who have no insurance can get insurance. now, the good part about this bill is that it is structured so that it is phased in. so that over time we can watch it. we can change it. for example, this next year, small business tax credits go in place and $5 billion is available for insurance for those who have been denied because of preconditions. so these people will be able to get insurance right away. things like the exchange and the public option come on line on 2014. so the bill, in a sense, is incremental. we can watch it. we can change it. the important thing is that we debate it. there be a free flow of amendments. that some will pass, some will fall. the bill will go to conference. it has to be reconciled with the house bill. so we're at the beginning now of what is a great national and key debate. >> senator lieberman, let me pick up with wher

in america today. that massive change is because we have already turned over to the federal government most of our financial systems for them to be managing it. so they control our purse. this government controls the purse of america. and we have done that this year. it's there. we bailed people out. we are now voting members of financial organizations and businesses, like automobile firms. now we want to control the american people's purse. now we have to say to ourselves, well, what's going to happen when we do, when we create this great system, how do we know what it's going to look like? i want to use this, quite frankly but it's not fair because it's one-sided and this document is two-sided. but this document printed in smaller font is two-sided. here's what we have in the way of what the government needs to create for a health care plan. this is the substitute, the people's idea. it's the difference, ladies and gentlemen, between liberty and government. and you know, this week a whole lot of people came an awful long way so they could express their opinion and they were called radical
bankrupting america. guest: i think that the viewer's concerns reflect the concern that is widespread in the united states about national sovereignty, about control, and i do think that those concerns clash with the need to confront the problem. if in fact we do not address this problem in international and comprehensive way, how in the world do we address it? it may well be that the listeners was not believe in global warming, in which case -- it may well be that the listener does not believe in global warming, in which case he has nothing to worry about. if you believe that the emissions from china, india, and the united states contribute to global warming, it appears there is no other way to approach that issue then some kind of international agreement and some kind of enforcement. host:ueueueueueueueueueueueueueh warming, it appears there is no other way to approach that issue then some kind of international agreement and some kind of enforcement. host: dallas, roger, good morning. caller: good morning. man-made climate change, which which we have called global warming, has not be

as the true thing is what we're moving towards is a multiracial america. if you look at the composition and the rainbow or the gum ball or the mow sayic of america, -- mosaic of america, the 2010 census that is critically important is going to show an ever-changing picture towards a nation that by the time we get to 2045 or 2050 won't have a majority ethnic group. that is a fundamental reality that that's the course and that's the path that we are on as a nation. so i don't think we -- we have to be concerned. and i think reverend jackson addressed this. about the twisting of the youth -- and several other speakers did -- the twisting of the youth of the -- the twisting of the use of the word race. the way in which people say you're playing the race card. you're raising a racial issue. it's racial injustice and racial disparity that we have to seek to address and to correct. and i think we have an obligation as a nation. because if we don't address it, the past and the future is fraught with even more difficulty. imagine that in 10 short years by 2020 half -- half of the high school gra
america is under attack from without and from within. when you see the mountains of debt we are putting on our grandchildren, the bailouts, the so-called stimulus, cap and trade, and now pelosi care, this is an attack on america and our freedom. there is nothing about adding hundreds of billions in new taxes that is health care reform. massive new government regulations is not health care reform. rationing of health care is not health care reform. bureaucracy, telling doctors what they can do as they treat patients is not health care reform. public funding of abortion is not health care reform. so thank you for coming to washington.
